[gNewSense-users] Request for file permission help.

Hi, guys.


I rebuilt my main PC, today.  Feisty has gone and gNS is up and
running.  I have copied all my old data to the newly carved-up drives,
but am getting some permissions problems.  I have done this before,
but can't remember how I solved it.

Basically, the problem is with logging-in and the permissions on /home
directories and files.

I have done:

chown -R chris 770 (I am user chris)
chgrp -R chris 770
chmod -R /home/chris

When I log out and log back in, I get a Gnome message telling me that
my $HOME/.dmrc has the wrong permissions and should be 644.  I have
changed this, but still the same error.

Basically, I don't want my files to be world readable (read as home
readable!).  All users should own the files in their $HOME, and
finally, I need to get rid of the Gnome message.

Can anyone put me straight?
